Research Transparency Landscape

A landscape of funder data access policies and other resources, by Stephanie Wykstra.

New technology makes sharing research outputs– not just publications but also raw data, code, software, even lab notebooks – easier than ever before. The benefits from more open science are widely acknowledged. Yet there is still room for improvement: recent studies show that at least in some fields, sharing isn’t yet widespread. There are also a number of questions that remain: what should be shared, how and who should cover the costs? Even where it’s clear that research transparency should become the norm, answering these questions across diverse domains is challenging and will require much work and cooperation.

This landscape hopes to inform funders about available options to foster data-sharing and transparency, and briefly surveys some initiatives in the “research transparency” field more broadly, with the aim of facilitating collaboration.
